Battery/IMA does not work as it should. Been to 5 dealerships more then 10 times just getting the run around. Honda knows they have a major issue but will or can not offer any fix. MPG is: in city about 35 and on the highway 42. You don't need to spend 8K more to get this kind of mpg it is similar to regular Civic with a msrp of 15k. The paint job is poor. Car always feels like is having a hard time to change gear and to accelerate when going up the roads. The miles I put on this car the more issues are pumping up!
first 2k miles were fun after that issues after issues with IMA and transmission!
This was a white EX with 12,000 miles. Paid $16,000 before closing cost. Am still on my original tank of gas indicating 51 mpg, which is better than I had hoped for. Am driving with the Eco lite on and trying not to accelerate too hard. Have plugged a USB flashcard in with my favorite music. Will not subscribe to the Sirius capability. I find the car fun to drive with all the power I need. Have always been a heavy user of cruise control given sufficient room in front of me.
The CVT transmission, pump up and down seat, adjustable steering wheel column.
The tires feed back a lot of road noise and the ride at slow speeds is rough. The back seat head room is very limited.
After totaling my 2003 Dodge Caravan, I looked at 5 different vehicles to replace it and ended up with an Insight. The fuel mileage is what sold me on a lease. The car has a hi tech proven power train vs. the KIA Forte which has a higher tech interior only. The ride is busy but produces good handling on cornering despite the battery weight. The main review states that the engine crankshaft keeps rotating yet often my tachometer goes to 0 at a full stop? and I just snicker that the guy next to me is burning fuel going nowhere. he he. There is some rattling going over bumps coming from the open back area. Have to take it back to be looked at.
Economy and MPG display. Exterior front and side design. Radio controls. Side air bags. Seat belt warning (because I have a habit of not wearing it).
Bigger wheels would make it sexier. Moon roof. Rear spoiler. More electric assist in low load situations to increase fuel mileage.
I bought this car last March. I am really happy having this car in terms of fuel economy.but have to compromise in performance. it has slow accelerating capacity annoying sometimes, rest over all good , no complaints,
multi-informational display and effective dashboard that reflects the way you drive and helps to improve driving habit.
